NON MFC: Rd 13 2021



Recommended Posts

Sorry,  getting in early here.

Some tasty and meaningful matches for neutral Melbourne supporter this weekend.

Im actually quite worried about the Cats, as we obviously played them without Cameron, so my preference is for a Port win.

I’d also rather West Coast to miraculously win against Richmond whilst being injury depleted. 
 

Im not sure which permeate room suits us better in throes matches?

Depends how optimistic you are re the rest of the MFC season

If you're into insurance mode you want the interstate teams to lose thus minimising the chance of a first final interstate.

A counter thought to this theory is which team is more likely to overtake us.

Very difficult as all three of Geelong, Brisbane and Port are on 32 points at present.

Port..simply because the Geelong inclusions may not be match fit and Eagles for the fun of it.

Out of port and Girlong who really cares.  Hopefully though I hope Girlong miss out on a top 4 position.

Port are an interesting team. They are missing the speed and youth of Butters and Dursma. Their team looks slow in the midfield without them.  I expect their form to turn around and Dixon to kick a few bags soon. I expect Port to be our biggest threat by the end of the year

The Cats I still don't rate, but they keep proving me wrong. hopefully the next 3 weeks the Cats get found out

Depends upon who or where you would rather play (only if we have to play an away qualifying match if we lost form dramatically Which won't happen)

Adelaide Oval (Port)

Marvel (Dogs) possible MCG 

GMBH (Cats) probable MCG 

Gabba (Lions

MCG (Tigers)

Personally I would not be phased with any but Cats at GMBH straight after around 23 might be a double up opportunity to good to miss out on!!

Ya! Me too @JTR - but some folk on here give it some really good analysis - which isn't my bag to design, but love reading it.

 

Mind you - 3 weeks in a row (and after beating The Bulldogs and Brisbane) THIS still happens!!

Interesting...

On that scenario Geelong would play its first final at Kardinia Park... Geelong v WC

Could also result in no matches at all in Vic in the second round of the finals

Bulldogs to lose only one match going forward (presumably against us) is an interesting prediction. You may also have underestimated Brisbane by a game or two.

Fascinating though and thanks

Jeepers @Engorged Onion you're clearly a fan of what the Dogs are doing if you've got them only losing one match out of Geelong (in Geelong), West Coast (in Perth), Sydney, us (at the MCG) and Port Adelaide!

Having said that, there's not a huge difference between finishing 1st or 2nd, but there is a massive difference between finishing 2nd or 3rd when two of the next three best sides are Brisbane and Port.

Melb Fc unlocked the  Dogs in their most emphatic performance for the year and I think other quality teams will/could do the same. Dogs being on top is a bit Over The Top.

On this theory I have the dogs only winning 5 more games. Port Bombers Dees Eagles and Geelong will all be tricky for them.

If that beat that then well done to Beveridge to re-set strategy a bit.

watch the Geelong tactics against the Port kick out. Have not noticed this one before

Geelong using two players on the mark to prevent the Port kicker from playing on.

Excellent tactic against teams that like to kick deep such as ourselves

Tell ya what, both teams defensive efforts are pretty dismal. Fun to watch a shootout tho. 
Rozee is not a bad player! 
 

Let’s go Port. My hatred for Geelong cannot be explained in words.

Suck it up, Cats

I think this is the first Port game I have seen this year.

Is Rozee someone new? Any prior form?

How many decades can I watch the same Geelong players? Just retire already. So sick of this team. 

Lovin your work tonight Jaded. Feels like Selwood and Hawkins have been playing since the early 90’s!

Selwood getting done for holding the ball is maybe my favorite moment in football each week. Except for when Danger flops and doesn’t get a free. 
 

Port look good. Geelong look old. Can’t run with Port. I’m excited for when they all retire and become Hawthorn 2.0.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
